Rawalpindi, December 09:

One of the five men accused in the Benazir Bhutto assassination case has filed a petition in a trial court in Rawalpindi to initiate contempt of court proceedings against state prosecution to stop them from making public details of the case. Advocate Rao Abdul Raheem, who represents the accused, Sher Zaman, submitted before the Anti-Terrorism Court that the court had directed state prosecutors belonging to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to ''proceed in accordance with the law'' on an application which sought permission to make details of investigations in the Benazir case public, reports The Express Tribune. Earlier, Interior minister Rehman Malik had said that more facts about the case will be revealed on the fifth anniversary of the former Prime Minister''s assassination on December 27.
Advocate Raheem said that the trial court''s permission to the federal government to go ahead with its plan of going public with findings of the case, was tantamount to contempt of court. (ANI)
